Rich and thick and soft and chewy - everything you want in a cookie and more.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt and mix well.
Using a stand mixer, beat together butter and sugar until creamy.
Add eggs, milk, and vanilla and beat well.
Slowly add dry ingredients and mix well.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheet, and press the tops down slightly to level them out before baking. Bake 8-10 minutes.
Allow them to cool for a minute or two ,then transfer them to a wire rack to cool.
When removing from oven, I like to give the cookies a single drop onto the counter or stovetop. You want to hold it just a couple inches above the counter and let it drop. This helps “level out” the tops and gives them all a bit more consistent appearance.
